Overwatch Winter Wonderland event is back with an exciting game mode

Overwatch's Returning Holiday Events Has a Team of Meis Fighting a Yeti Winston

Certain Overwatch maps will be redone to suit the season. Like Overwatch's other seasonal events, the second helping of Winter Wonderland will be a healthy mix of new and old.

It's beginning to look a lot like seasonal-event time for online games, and Overwatch is showing up with the return of its fan-favorite Winter Wonderland holiday festival.

Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan has stated that new legendary skins will make it to the game for heroes such as Hanzo, Junkrat, and Road Hog. "I was absolutely blown away when I saw the work that they had done and we really hope that you enjoy that". This will once again cover the King's Row map in snow and holiday decorations, and Blizzard Entertainment has also confirmed that it has given a makeover to the Black Forest map to celebrate the gift-giving holidays.

The starkest change is in the brawl that will be available in Arcade Mode this year.

Finally, a completely new game mode will be Mei's Yeti Hunt - an asymmetrical 1 v 5 boss fight.

While Winter Wonderland is a revival of last year's event, Blizzard is bringing some major new additions.

The more familiar mode, Mei's Snowball Offense, will still be playable too, this time not just on Ecopoint: Antarctica, but in the Black Forest too. Another new mode will also be added called Yeti Hunt, where a team of five Meis lead the charge against an ultra-powerful Yeti Winston and must hunt him down before he becomes unstoppable. Once that happens, the Yeti will prove a formidable foe for the six Mei players.

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland returns next week on Tuesday. The big thing here is that a player will actually control the yeti, which is a powered up version of Winston.

All in all, Mei's Yeti Hunt sounds like a blast.
